Here are some sketches of what my robot would look like and how to animate the water dripping:
Here's the finished thing:
I think the camera move works well and the background looks good, with it having a slight 3D aspect thanks to Toonboom. The drip works alright, but you don't actually notice it as your eye is not drawn to it, it's tiny and it's not on screen for long. Therefore it was a bit of a waste of time and was evidently a mistake in my original planning. The animation on the robot is pretty poor and was honestly a bit rushed because of encroaching deadlines. Toonboom seems like a really great piece of software and I want to get to grips with it, as it's obviously much better for animation than Flash, but much less user friendly. This project however has been a nice little introduction to it.
